According to “what get’s measured get’s done”, sustainable building rating tools and certificates offer outstanding planning guidelines, quantification methods and benchmarks for a large number of environmental, social and economic aspects.
The real estate sector asks for marketing green and sustainable buildings. Assessment systems such as BREEAM, LEED, DGNB and HQE are more and more widespread and become market relevant.
The youngest member of the family, the German DGNB certificate, offers the benchmark for highest and most comprehensively assessed quality of buildings. It has been applied in more than 80 office and administrative, commercial and industry buildings in practice since autumn 2008 and offers a clear orientation concerning matters of sustainable building. Certification of buildings is the instrument for clearly highlighting your commitment in sustainability.
